  1. Past hour
  2. Not a bad position going into the New Year. Shame the board isn't putting their money where it will do some good, but if you can keep Parker healthy you should be in good shape. While I figure out my next move I'm back to playing my sporadic Man Utd save where, happily, Max Aarons is still my player. And having just qualified for next season's Champions League, the board just gave me a transfer budget of £333m .
  3. I always thought your rep was a global thing, so the stars represent your standing on he WORLD stage. So winning promotions and trophies can help, the bigger the trophy the bigger increase in rep. I don;t know about the ones you have achieved, but if the competition rep is low, then you won;t get much hit on your manager rep.
  4. Yesterday
  5. Reworked "news" panel for dark version of EVO PLUS. Light in progress!
  6. Ah maybe that's why I have missed the check box as I am playing FMT. Put a thread in the FMT Forum but you are lucky if you ever get an answer there!! I had assumed it would be the same as FM Full Fat but if it's staff responsibilities then they must be different as I don't have that tab available from the U23 Manager and that might by why I missed the Inbox message although at times I do shoot through those. Just strange I never encountered the same situation at least once before over the years as I have always had fringe players on reserve list to up their fitness.
  7. I don't agree with you in some aspects. About the Goalkeeper, i don't agree with you, he isnt the simple gk that throws the ball into the midfield and hopes someone of his team gets it, he often receives the ball and plays shortly to his center backs or fullbacks. The simple gk role doesn't give me that. About the fullbacks, André Almeida and Grimaldo, i agree with you, in real life, Grimaldo is a lot more creative, a lot more incisive than A. Almeida is, the problem is, as you know, FM tries to simulate real-life management. As i shown in my previous picture, both fullbacks hugh the line very far in the pitch, Grimaldo is more offensive and Andre Almeida is not, you suggest playing Wing-Back ? Well, you just need to see that the wing-back in a FM match does not stay far up in the patch as the CWB, the problem is that. If you play like that, you will see Grimaldo very high up in the pitch and Andre Almeida doesnt not hugh the line and by that you can't create a 2x1 with pizzi. Center-backs, Ferro is indeed a BPD, and Ruben Dias is a BPD too, why ? Cause the BPD role give the "permission" to try long range passes, as Ferro does per example, but the BPD role also gives the permission to the center-back push forward with the ball on his feet, with the cimple CB role normally he will try to pass short and thats it. With the midfield, i have tried DLP (s) and DLP (d), i have tried BWM, MC(d), BWM is a valid option. About the 2 wingers. Well, you need to understand something. Both Rafa and Pizzi stay in the half-space, as you see in the pictures, by that, you cant simply use an Inverted Winger role, and why ? Cause the Inverted Winger role doesn't play like he does in real-life. Play Rafa in that role and you will see him often trying to dribble, shoot from far and losing the ball very often, i explained before, when someone receives the ball in the half-space, the others make a run behind the defence. Besides that, the Inverted Winger hughs the line in possession, i don't want that. About the strikers, i tried J. Félix in DLF, Trequartista, False 9, DLF and Trequartista are valid options. Sometimes i use False 9 in some specific games. Like i explained before, FM isn't real-life management, you cant simply tell players to do specific stuff. The roles you chose in the game will translate in a coded player movimentation, like i said before, Rafa with an inverted winger will try to dribble, you just need to watch 1 or 2 matches and you will understand that both Pizzi and Rafa stay in the half-space, the Inverted Winger doesn't give me that.
  8. So first, the clubs. They're based in France, which is why they generate French players. For example, this one. To change that, you go to their page in the Editor and make sure they're based where they should be, like so. You can use Swansea as a model. You also need to make sure their stadium and facilities are in the right city/country. In the league stage, make sure to go under this option, activate it and then untick it to make sure the top team doesn't become a champion. That said, and like I said earlier, this setup isn't what you'd want to use for your project. Personally I'm getting an outright crash after doing those changes and trying to hit Continue. You should model your database around and after other fantasy databases. I suggest looking at FMScout.com for fantasy databases you can take inspiration from.
  9. He can write music, sing, drive the women wild with his deep voice, and apparently play AMC
  10. I was just wondering if anybody knew of any 'technical' reason as to why my rep is still at 1 1/2 stars. I'd assume it would be higher after a few promotions, league titles and domestic trophies with around a 60% winrate over 10 seasons which I'd count as consistent success. 1 1/2 stars is around the level of a English Conference club. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue or I'm just doing something wrong
  11. Yes, I realize that the left flank would be very exposed, but irl Benfica took lots of risks with Grimaldo and Rafa playing there. Many times we would see them going up side by side leaving big area exposed in the back. That was compensated by, Samaris that cover that side, and by the left center back that slightly drift to that side. That's why I think Samaris plays IRL as a BWM because he needs to cover a big area in that midfield. But, that risk cost Benfica, for example, the semi final in the Portuguese cup, where a bad transition in the left side, with Grimaldo trying to run with the ball, and with Rafa already up in the pitch, lost possession to Bruno Fernandes that scored a great goal. Lage tactics have some issues in transitions, in particular in defensive transitions, but in possession, it produces beautiful football. I think that this set-up that I made also suffers from the same issues.
  12. Chelsea faced Juventus at Stamford Bridge knowing that a point would put them within touching distance of the knockout stage, and a win would guarantee it, as would a point if Gladbach failed to beat Dinamo Zagreb. However, the Blues were without José Gayà, who was suspended after being sent off in Turin. Spencer opted to start Azpilicueta at left back, and give Charlie Wakefield his Champions League debut. Juventus, meanwhile, were without their cultured Argentine striker, Paulo Dybala, who had sustained a calf strain. Chelsea Courtois Wakefield Luiz Zouma Azpilicueta Matic Kanté Fàbregas Willian Costa Hazard Substitutes: Begovic, Zappacosta, Rüdiger, Camacho, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Batshuayi Juventus Buffon Benatia Bonucci Chiellini Lichtsteiner Pjanic Khedira Sandro Correa Savic Mandzukic Substitutes: Neto, Goldaniga, Cuadrado, Niang, Asamoah, Rugani, Lemina Referee: Viktor Kassai (HUN) Ils sont les meilleurs Sie sind die besten These are the Champions Die meister Die besten Les meilleurs équipes The Champions! After being hit early on by Chelsea in the previous match, Juventus looked to return the favour. In the second minute, Pjanic put a free kick wide after a foul by David Luiz, before Bonucci headed against the upright from a corner two minutes later. In the fourteenth minute, a free kick from Willian was deflected out for a corner, before a shot from Kanté was blocked a minute later. In the 24th minute, Kanté intercepted a pass from Sandro to Khedira and passed to Luiz, who sent a long ball to Costa. Costa moved the ball out wide to Willian, who got down the right before passing to Kanté, and Kanté got into the area before surging past Chiellini and striking a low shot which settled just over the line off the inside of the post to give Chelsea the lead. A minute later, a free kick from Pjanic found Benatia, whose header wasn't even close. Mandzukic then sent a header wide, before Courtois turned a Savic shot behind. Three minutes from half time, a superb sliding tackle from Chiellini dispossessed Willian, and Juventus looked to counter. Sandro played a long ball down the left for Mandzukic, who passed to Savic. Correa then took over and exchanged passes with Pjanic before seeing a shot tipped behind by Courtois. Five minutes into the second half, David Luiz robbed Mandzukic and passed to Zouma. Zouma passed left to Azpilicueta, who passed down the line for Hazard. Hazard passed through to Fàbregas, who found Wakefield out on the right. Wakefield passed to the feet of Willian, who floated the ball in from the right, and Costa volleyed home at the near post to double Chelsea's lead. Five minutes later, Azpilicueta played the ball past Lichtsteiner and looked for Hazard. Hazard encouraged Costa to come forward with a searching pass, but Costa lost the ball to Bonucci. Bonucci, however, lost it to Hazard, whose shot was saved by Buffon. In the 63rd minute, Conte replaced Savic with Cuadrado, who was incidentally on loan from Chelsea. Cuadrado looked to get on the scoresheet immediately, but sent the ball over the bar. Two minutes later, Zouma headed wide from a corner. In the 67th minute, Juventus were awarded a free kick for a David Luiz handball. Pjanic's shot was blocked by Kanté, but the ball fell to Benatia, who played the ball into the area for Lichtsteiner. Lichtsteiner went for glory, but his shot was saved by Courtois. Juventus then took Bonucci off, replacing him with Goldaniga. Two minutes later, Chelsea looked to launch a counter attack, as Fàbregas sent a 30 yard ball to Hazard. Hazard sent a cross into the area, where Diego Costa connected and saw his volley strike the post. In the 72nd minute, Goldaniga found Pjanic, who passed to Cuadrado. Cuadrado passed into the path of Mandzukic, whose shot was saved by Courtois. Juventus then made their final change, replacing Pjanic with Asamoah. With just under ten minutes left, Azpilicueta played a pass down the left to Hazard, who sent in a cross. Costa headed from an awkward angle, but sent his header wide. As the match closed out, Spencer brought Camacho, Loftus-Cheek and Batshuayi on for Kanté, Matic and Costa. In the final minute of stoppage time, Cuadrado looked to grab a consolation goal, but sent the ball over the bar. The win meant that Chelsea were guaranteed a spot in the knockout stage. UEFA Champions League Group C, Match 4 - at Stamford Bridge, London Chelsea 2-0 Juventus (Kanté 24, Diego Costa 50) Attendance: 41,629 (2,081 away) Man of the Match: Willian The Premier League awards were presented the following day. Both Diego Costa and N'Golo Kanté were pipped to the Player of the Month award by West Ham's advanced forward Jonathan Calleri, while Spencer edged out Slaven Bilic and Mauricio Pochettino for Manager of the Month. Some people, however, disagreed with the decision; in his column in The Sun, Sid Collingwood stated that “While I have nothing against Spencer and I believe he has had a good month, Slaven Bilic is more deserving of the award on the following tiebreaker: West Ham five, Manchester United one.” Other Results Tuesday Group A: Besiktas 2-4 CSKA Moscow (Aboubakar 6, 69, Gökhan Tore s/o 35; Dzagoev

  13. Villa fan here and played a lot with the Claret and Blues this year. He really is a player who can play a multitude of roles. I've found Mezzala and RPM to bE good but I think in the right system he'd be great as AP. What kind of set up do you have him in?
  14. This can happen if there is more than one team interested and a small bidding war will give a better price for the selling price. Under these conditions, the asking price is just the first part of the negotiations
  15. Is there a way to change the league when making a club? Like take over Stoke but go into League 2? @Lucas
  16. Welcome to the forums. Manager reputation will rise with success but it is not an instant rise and you will need to show consistent success for major changes to take place. I have edited your thread tile as that was not necessary
  17. @Keyzer Soze Your tactic makes a lot more sense than the OP one from both FM and RL football perspectives, except for the left flank, which would be extremely exposed by having the CWB and IW both on attack duty.
  18. This is the reason I always set my tactics for the next game immediately after the previous one - it makes selecting u23 availability much easier. I also never skip past the inbox message asking fro players available (if you aren't seeing it, it is a checkbox under Staff Responsibilities I think ) you can ask the u23 manager to remind you before every fixture. Worht remembering that if left to his own devices, whoever picks the team fro age-group fixtures will use the best players available to him, so first-teamer set to be available will get snapped up every time. So as annoying as it feels, I'm afraid its not a bug but you can work with it easily enough.
  19. @john1 Very good progress, you're definitely sorting the club out now! @Carlf788 Congratulations on a very decent finish, hopefully next season will see you improve again (if you don't move on). @warlock Understandable decision, best of luck in your next challenge! Charlton Season 1 - Part 3 November saw a bit of an upturn in form, with just one league defeat against Portsmouth I also failed to get knocked out of the Checkatrade Trophy (as usual) and scraped past Luton in FA Cup Round 1 after a replay December saw similar results, scraping through in both Cups after disappointing performances in easier fixtures The league form was good, a run of three wins putting me top again - before losing the last two as the year closed on a low note This leaves my team sat in 3rd as the January transfer window opens, so not too bad at all really (it's tight at the top) As you will see from the below graph, it's still Josh Parker leading the way on the pitch But both he and Lyle Taylor (who has been injured a lot) keep getting international calls, leaving only one semi-fit natural striker at times As a result, I added another forward on 6th December when I landed James Norwood on a free transfer Burton paid Tranmere £160k for his services on 26th July 2018, but after four appearances his contract was mutually terminated on 1st December With no transfer fee and wages of just £1.5k, it was a low-risk manoeuvre on my part, and he becomes a useful rotation option More interestingly you'll see the financial graph on the right, and the good news is the club balance sits at just under £64 million However, since the tycoon takeover, neither the wage budget or transfer budget have been adjusted upwards Maybe the board are concerned about FFP (which the club is on target to pass), but it looks like the transfer window is going to be a non-event
  20. Writing these from scratch. Today I finally got access to this season's game and I just started playing it around one hour ago, I'll come up with more as I keep playing. There is an inconsistency in the translation for "Create". The infinitive was used for the Fantasy Draft whereas other modes used the imperative. Grammar mistake - it should be "qual dos membros da equipa técnica é que está em controlo". That is a very casual way of addressing someone, bordering on rude depending on the situation. It's contrasting to the rest of the entire piece, where formal is used. The variables for the staff member's name and their role are reversed, causing a severe syntax issue. Spanish spelling is used for the highlighted word. The correct Portuguese version is "directrizes". I presume the English source starts with "Looks to (...)". This string was mistranslated as "Looks like it's (...)" which doesn't fit the sentence's meaning. That string on catenaccio currently reads "It looks like it nullifies the opposition's attack threats." A fixing suggestion would be "Pretende anular a ameaça de ataque da oposição." so that the correct context would be conveyed. A bit of a nitpicky one, but since the subject is "the majority" of the players, then the single verb tense should be used rather than the plural. The last sentence would be better with either "e parece estar a divertir-se no treino" or "e eles parecem estar". Football terminology. We call it "mercado de transferências". Oh wow, FCP won the Portuguese Premier league 2018 times?! That's a lot of titles! :P I guess the translator confused the "last title" and the "amount of titles" variables. It should be something like "conquistou de forma memorável a Primeira Liga pela última vez em 2018". (I'm surprised no localisation worker played as Porto, honestly.) The first highlighted bit is a double space. I've spotted a few of those in my hour of gameplay. The second highlight is a basic grammar mistake. "Victories" is female in Portuguese, however the numeral is in its male version. The third and fourth relate to inconsistencies through the entire paragraph. Sometimes the team is referred as a singular entity, sometimes the plural is used. Spelling. The highlighted word should have been "troféus" but to be fair syntax is a bit of a mess for the entire sentence. I'd rewrite it as follows: "A longa história do FCP de sucessos premiados tem-nos visto adicionar consistentemente novas entradas a uma já considerável sala de troféus." It's not a big improvement though, that's a hard sentence to work with. It's getting late, tomorrow I'll try to play the game for some more!
  21. I didn't mean any offence by it my unhinged ovine friend :-) The two roles are very different but compliment each other well.
  22. Maybe they just want more out of you. What was your negotiation stance after this? Who else went in for him? How did this end?
